"Green Jacket" as written by and Bradford Cox....
i take what i can, i give what i have left
i take by the hand what i have felt
what i see

(skulls pressed flesh on flesh)

    General CommentLyrics are somewhat straightforward, but I have no idea about the last line... It's delivery after everything else and the way Bradford seems like he's two miles away when he sings it. The piano chords right in the middle are excellent.

    General CommentApparently this track is about first love. With the elegant piano and haunted, ethereal lyrics, this song conjures up images of lovers meeting for the first time with time itself stopping as they cannot help but feel a sense of touch by putting their heads together in an effort to understand the other entirely for who they are.
